MSE Mothers Day card - Sepia Tones


After the brilliant inspiration from the fab Gemma I thought I'd have a go at the MSE challenge of a Mothers Day card. The paper is from a gorgeous Stampin' Up set I bought from Monica and so is the scallop punch I used on the print flowers. These flowers were an inspired idea by Wendy Smedley and I used loads of sepia and gold ink to give the flowers a lift. The image is from a kit by Hunkydory on Create & Craft.tv. The other cream flowers and ribbon I bought in Canada at a dollar store, 15 flowers for about 60p, a bargain and I had fun inking the edges with the sepia and gold inks. The card is for my wonderful Mother in Law, bless you Mum! I'm going to enter this is in a couple of challenges too. (if I can find them!)
